The Town Krk is the administrative and political centre of the island of Krk in Croatia. Old town is inside the town walls built in Roman times and in the middle ages.

Eat[edit][add listing]

Bacchhus Wine Restaurant: Best food and at super low prices. Located in the old city, just ask your way there.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Bacchus Wine Restaurant in the old town: All sorts of different wines plus excellent food, the best and cheapest food you can find in the old town. Enter Soto Boterije through a small gate in the city wall behind the tower to enjoy cheap drinks and sitting on the rocks of the coast.

Casa del Padrone on the main quay promenade: Wide selection of cocktails and coffees on the terrace right at the seafront, protruding out of the quay promenade almost like a boat. Also offers gorgeous cakes and ice-cream. Beautiful settings with plush cushioned chairs.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

In the old town on Krk, you can find Turist Information Center and they will give you a brochure that includes all hotels/hostels in the area including prices (in euro) per night per season. Prices are in range from 20 euro per night to 140 euro for old-town 4 star hotel. Not on holiday during a week you can also find local apartment (Sobe) near the hotels part of Krk. Price is around 40-50 euro per night for couple for very price room with air-conditioning and bathroom. There's a youth hostel in KRK [4]. It is pretty run down though and you cannot lock the toilet and shower doors! The location is excellent though and you won't get a cheaper bed. One night in a 3-4 bedroom dorm is around 117 plus tax and a "registration fee" so it sets you back about 150 Kuna. The place used to be for over 55 people, the owner has had registered it for 24 guests only so you currently will find half of the rooms locked and taped up by the tax office.
